I have been trying to export a map from QGIS using the qgis2web plugin. But my polygons and classification colors are not displayed in the exported HTML file, I only can see the Google Street Map layer.

My map has a layer for Google Street Map and another with polygons from a shapefile, colored based on one of the columns from a CSV file.

Here's the map: enter image description here

When I try to export the map (I tried OpenLayers and Leaflet), the preview is what I expect: enter image description here

but the final HTML file only displays the Google Street Map layer. Not the polygons/colors.

Any thoughts on why is that happening?

EDIT: Included the 'appearance tab' enter image description here

  • Hello. Normally this should be not a problem for qgis2web. I have never tested the variant with colored from a csv file. Maybe this is the reason. Any problems if you take the colores from the categorized shapefile? Which qgis/qgis2web version?(for windows?)

  • Same problems, if you export only your shapefile?

  • I've tried to export only the shapefiles, but the output is an empty map... I'm using: QGIS: 3.14.15-Pi and qgis2web: 3.16

  • I'm installing the previous version of QGIS, and if that doesn't work I'll try another OS (currently on windows)

  • Could you take a screenshot from "Appearance"? (edit your question)

My teammate and I had this exact issue. It turned out to be because the attribute name used for the color classification was case-sensitive in qgis2web.
